Arizona Bumps Off Collared Lion

The Arizona Game and Fish Department killed a collared mountain lion on Tuesday afternoon. The lion was known to be preying heavily on bighorn sheep in the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge, or "Kofa Mountains Complex Predation Management Area" in southwestern Arizona. The agency insists that recovering the Kofa desert bighorn sheep herd from near record-low population levels will be challenging due to additive mountain lion predation (emphasis my own).
